vice to take indefinite break from competition
vice made his first splash competitively when he signed for TSM in early 2016 following a stint in Denial. There, he played with Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen, Pujan "FNS" Mehta, Hunter "SicK" Mims, and Liquid superstar Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken.
vice also shared a team with Ethan "Ethan" Arnold when they both were under the eUnited banner. He then went on to sign by Rogue, where he had his longest tenure and played with the likes of Spencer "Hiko" Martin, Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen, Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland, and Casper "cadiaN" Møller before getting his big break with Cloud9. The Cloud9 transfer didn't work out, however, as the team was overhauled soon after as bad results had been dragging on before and after his joining the organization.
The American player has now stated that he will return to school and go on hiatus from competition as he has lost motivation, but has left the opportunity for a return in the future open.
vice's statement reads:
"As of now and the foreseeable future, I am taking an extended break from competitive CS. Somewhere along the way, I lost the inspiration and motivation that made me want to devote 100% of myself to the game and I don't think staying in the pro scene for the sake of money is the right way for me. I'm planning on going back to school for now but CS has been such a big part of my life that I doubt I'll be done with it forever.
"Shoutout to all my friends that made this journey unforgettable"
